Signed Rinne to a contract that most pundits deemed an overpayment. Offered to match any offer Suter received, but weren't given the chance. And though it hasn't been publicly disclosed, I'll wager the Preds offered Weber something along the lines of what Suter was offered. Ownership went all out at the trade deadline and has given every indication that they are trying to be a cap team. Offering 8+ million to both Suter and Weber refects an organization that is ready to spend to the cap.
